Red Hat shifts to Red Hat Enterprise Linux

The major shift of attention to Red Hat Enterprise Linux as the focus of Red Hat, Inc.’s commercial efforts has been on the horizon for some time. Some characteristics of Red Hat Enterprise Linux are:

• Longer release intervals — Instead of offering releases every 6 months or so, Enterprise software has closer to an 18-month to two-year update cycle. Customers can be assured of a longer support cycle without having to upgrade to a later release.

• Multiple support options — Customers will have the choice of purchasing different levels of support. All subscriptions will include the Update Module, which allows easy access to updates for Red Hat Enterprise Linux systems. The Management Module lets customers develop custom channels and automate management of multiple systems. The
Monitoring Module allows customers to monitor and maintain an entire infrastructure of systems.

• Documentation and training — Manuals and training courses will center on the Red Hat Enterprise Linux distribution.

Red Hat Enterprise Linux products include offerings for both server and desktop operating systems. The base RHEL server system is designed for small server deployment, while RHEL Advanced Platform aims at large installations that can benefit from features such as storage virtualization and high-availability clustering. Standard desktop and workstation versions of RHEL Desktop are available.

Each system in the Red Hat Enterprise Linux family is meant to be compatible with the others. There are Basic, Standard, and Premium editions of these Enterprise systems. While Basic offers only software downloads, standard and premium editions offer hard copy documentation and additional technical support.
